Icing on the cake - the India connect at royal wedding

London: Television show hosts in the US stirred up a controversy during the British royal wedding when one of them called Queen Elizabeth II a "bumble bee" while another asked, "Where are the black people?"

"Where are the black people?" asked Sherri Shepherd of ABC's "The View" programme, according to the Daily Mail.

The 44-year-old actress said she had searched through the footage of guests at Westminster Abbey.

"Audrey Jones, our producer, was looking for the black people in the wedding and we found our Rosa Parks moment, because we were like 'where are the black people'?" she said.

She was referring to African-American civil rights activist Rosa Parks who refused to obey a bus driver's order to give up her seat for a white passenger in December 1955.

"It was like where's Waldo, where are the black people? We found one little black child in the choir but where's the black people at this wedding?" she repeated.

The women also mocked the queen and the dresses of princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

Joy Behar, 68, said the queen looked like a "bumble bee with a drinking problem".

"Holy Moly, who wears yellow?" she said, adding "I've never seen a queen wearing yellow, she looks like a taxi cab. Keep that meter running Queenie".

When talking of the hats of Eugenie and Beatrice, host Sherri Shepherd said: "Oh my god, that is Lady Gaga. Straight."

"They look like they are auditioning for 'Let's Make a Deal', you know that show?" said Joy, referring to an old game show on NBC where the audience used to dress in hilarious costumes, often like clowns.

"They look like horns," said Sherri.

"Like a deer in the headlights," added actress Goldie Hawn, 65, who was a guest host for the day.
